At my mother's nursing home I recently saw two couples sitting in the lobby, good and kind people that I've known for years. The wives have both recently been placed into nursing home care, the husbands visit daily. Both husbands were holding their wives' hands. I know enough of caregiving to understand that kind of love; it is formed of loyalty, duty, compassion, a commitment to stick together through difficult times, the culmination of a lifetime of sharing...and more. It was heartbreaking and heartwarming at the same time. I am continually blessed to see how the Lord provides for those He loves during the best and worst of times, and all the seasons in between.
